    The Bible presents them as having literally happened. There is nothing in the accounts themselves to even suggest an allegorical or other nonliteral meaning. They happened, just as Christ literally died for all your sins and literally rose again for your justification. But you don't believe that either. If you did you wouldn't be engaged in most of the discussions you try to start.

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    I'm shocked at how stupid this post is Must. The events of Christ are the best witnessed history of the period. That was really foolish.

    The continuation of Judaistic eschatology has nothing to do with that or with the proof or trust of the Bible. Read Heb 11-13 10x and see if there 'needs' to be anything more happen that is Judaistic. Certainly not to get the business of the judgement of the world at the end of time done. Not a letter.

    The New Covenant is eternal and therefore existed before the Old Covenant.

    Well, I take solace in what that great meat eater on TOL once said, Mayor:"The truth is, the bible is true." And also in humming, you guessed it....a one-a....a two-a....altogether now...snap your fingers...Acapella...Acapella....

    I bear an amazing resemblance to Frank Sinatra, when I sing that...

    Are you practicing your "new" smooth move, or "old?" I know, I know..It's the same thing.....Why Paul?(That is too deep for the anti dispensational crowd. I wonder what causes that?)

    No, it only appears stupid to the stupid.

    And herein lies the idiocy in all your posts and threads.

    You just authoritatively declared certain passages of the Bible to be literal historical fact.

    But on other passages that are presented in exactly the same non-figurative, non-poetic, non-allegorical fashion, you run to human authorities to DENY those as being literally true, even though the Text itself gives you NO WARRANT WHATSOEVER to take them as any less literal than the ones you just affirmed.

    It is you who are stupid. Dangerously stupid.

Therefore, no one could know Him in that context any longer. It has not been continued or transferred to Gentiles in any sense; it had been deactivated by God Himself even while Paul had written those words and remains (for now) completely deactivated.

    But the Good News is that it was superseded by better things: the progressive revelation through Paul of God's secret purposes of grace (Rom 16:25; Gal 1:12; Eph 3:8-9).

    The point is, if Paul said even to those who might have known Him "according to the flesh" of His ministry to Israel (meaning, for us, according to the four Gospels and early Acts), then that inability to know Him thus HAS to go double for us today.

    The old rallying cry of "Get back to the Gospels!" is not just backwards, it is rebellion against the revealed will of God and denies Christ as He has revealed Himself to us.

    YOU CANNOT AND WILL NOT KNOW CHRIST THE WAY GOD DESIRES WITHOUT MAJORING ON THE PAULINE REVELATION. SCRIPTURALLY, THAT'S "WHERE IT'S AT." TO DIMINISH OR DISMISS PAUL'S REVELATION IS TO DISMISS CHRIST HIMSELF.
    That's pretty much a bullseye!

    No one is saying the Gentiles are going to come live in Israel and be a theocracy there. They are saying that the kingdom is now being operated all over the earth by those who have faith, and that there is no restoration, return, revisiting, what Judaism thought would happen.
